As part of a climate package, Denmark has reportedly proposed food labels that would indicate the environmental impact of the food’s production. Danish Minister for the Environment Lars Christian Lilleholt reportedly told The Local, “We want to give consumers the means to assess in supermarkets the environmental impact of products.” The Danish Agriculture & Food Council supported the measure but suggested that the environmental impact labels may need to consider the nutritional value of a product as well. “A bottle of soda may have a low environmental impact, but it is not a product you can live on,” the organization’s director is quoted as saying.
